What recourse do you have when (not if) NJ refuses to "obey and follow??"
Litmus test - Is NJ "obeying and following" now??.....when you have an active court case and everybody's looking?? In other words, is she playing by the rules??.....or is she pushing the envelope at every opportunity??
Look into your crystal ball. You know her better than anyone. Do you think she'll "obey and follow" after divorce is finalized?? In other words, how do you think she'll behave post-divorce when no one's looking??

A clause.....?? What makes you think NJ will sign Form 8332 on alternate years once divorce is finalized?? And what recourse do you have when (not if) she refuses??
Bottom line: If you hope to get tax deductions on alternate years, NJ must sign Form 8332 before
divorce is finalized.

Time for debating is running short, don't you think?? Instead, you should be doing extensive research. Leave no stone unturned. Keep asking questions 'til you get answers that work for you.

In this game, you must never "assume" anything. Start doing your calculations. Use a variety of financial scenarios.

Come hell or high water, if you expect to get anywhere, you hafta to step out of your comfort zone. You hafta be willing to push the envelope. And you hafta become even more willing to take risks. Because he who risks little gets little. That's how it works.
You get exactly one chance to get this right. Never lose sight of what's at stake.

Q: How are you paying CS now?? Who's keeping track of the CS you do pay?? Who's keeping track of the arrearage you're paying off??
